           Summary: window.location.hostname should remove brackets of
                    IPv6 host

Specification: http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/
Section:
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/urls.html#dom-uda-hostname

For IPv6 address, URI will be like http://[2001:240:629::6]/foo.html.
On IE and Firefox, when open the URI, window.location.hostname will be
"2001:240:629::6".
But Safari 5.0.3 (6533.19.4) and Chrome 10.0.612.3 returns "[2001:240:629::6]".

Mozilla explicitly says remove brackets from hostname.
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/window.location

I think, it is because hostname means DNS name.
So HTML5 spec should describe about this.
